Hip-Hop Songs That Sampled Video Games

September 25, 2008

The Examiner put together a list of the "Top 10 Hip-Hop Songs that Sampled a Video Game."   I personally never been a fan of video game samples (always felt they were a little cheap), but the skill behind joints like Oh No‘s "The Ride" and Percee P’s "2 Brothers From The Gutter" can’t be forgotten.

Check the complete article.

I was trying to find that BOAC track but I couldn’t remember the name of the artist. I thought it was Ugly Duckling and searched all over. Finally got to hear it again. Reminds me of cruising around LA in the homie’s car playing mix-tapes on a boombox.
